Connecting European Neuroscience

Slots in NENS Courses in 2015

In partnership with IBRO-PERC, FENS has launched this initiative to support MSc and PhD neuroscience students - European and non-European - to broaden their knowledge and acquire international experience by participating in short courses organised by the NENS schools.

The FENS and IBRO-PERC stipends of 750 EUR each are intended to cover travel and accomodation costs for master of PhD students interested to attend short courses outside the country where they are studying.
